What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is a procedure whereby an indelible tattoo design is removed from the face or body of the patient. It is performed when patients want a different style or design for their tattoo or because of a change in their lifestyle.    

What are the types of Tattoo Removal procedures?

The most common type of tattoo removal is laser assisted tattoo removal. Other types include surgical skin grafting procedures, microdermabrasion, salabrasion or tattoo removal by rubbing with salt, cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen, tattoo removal using trichloroacetic acid that removes the top layers of skin and even surgical excision.  

Are Tattoo Removal procedures painful?

Numbing methods including injecting local anaesthetics, blowing cold air, placing ice packs and applying numbing creams are used during tattoo removal in order to minimise the pain involved.

When can I travel by air after Tattoo Removal?

Patients should not travel by air for at least one day after having nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures performed. Patients should wait for a few days after surgical tattoo removal procedures and get a certification from their surgeon that they are fit to travel by air.  

How long does recovery take after Tattoo Removal procedures?

It takes about one to two weeks to recover from nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures. Recovery from surgical tattoo removal procedures may take up to two months.

What after care is required after a Tattoo Removal procedure?

Patients should take any prescribed medications and apply any topical medication correctly. Patients should not wear tight clothing till the area is fully healed. They should not put any lotion or cosmetic on the treated area for at least three days. They should not get the area wet for at least two days. They should not expose skin to direct sunlight. They should not touch or scratch the treated area until completely healed.

Highly recommendedAlida, South Africa, 18 08 22

Happy with my lip filler but will be returning soon to give it more of a discreet “plump pouty” lift on the fleshier part of the lips. Excellent bedside manner. Very good advice / suggestion on various procedures I enquire about. Highly recommended!

The dentist checks in with you after your treatment to make sure you’re doing fineJocelyn, South Africa, 08 01 23

Dr Sibda creates a calm and happy environment which is so great especially if you (like me) suffer with anxiety going to any doctor. Removed 2 wisdoms at the same time and it was swift and careful. Also Dr Sibda checks in with you after your extraction to make sure you’re doing fine.
